A photograph by Holly (Snyder) Solano '92 won first place in Points of Departure, a juried national photography exhibition hosted by The Metropolitan Center for the Visual Arts in Rockville, Maryland.
The photo, titled "Impatient Cyclist," is of Solano's daughter, captured as she was about to take the inaugural ride on her first "big girl" bike. It was selected as best in show from 743 entries.
Solano graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in geology. She received her master's degree in instructional design, development and evaluation from Syracuse University in 1995. Solano and her husband, Anthony Solano '90, live near Washington, D.C. and her company, Arts 'n Smarts, sells reproductions of her art and offers fine arts classes designed to encourage cognitive growth with fun activities. A portion of the company's sales is donated to local community service groups that help children with food, water, safety and emotional help.
